Beautiful and Permanent New Teeth

Unlike tooth replacement alternatives such as dentures or dental bridges, implants have added benefits like:

  • Stand Alone Tooth Replacement
  • Potential to Last Your Entire Lifetime
  • Replace as Few or Many Teeth as Necessary
  • Support Anything from a Crown to a Denture

A dental implant is a stand-alone tooth replacement that does not rely on the support of other teeth. It uses a prosthetic root that is designed to resemble the function of a real tooth. This makes implants one of the most natural ways to replace a missing tooth. When properly cared for, over 95% of implants last for life.

The biocompatible materials used inside of dental implants encourage new bone growth, making your jaw stronger and securing your implant in place.

Restoring Your Missing Teeth

For instance, a traditional dental bridge can only replace one or two teeth – and must have healthy teeth on each end to support it. But, an implant-supported bridge can replace as many as 3 to 4 teeth at a time! Implants can also be used to support a CEREC dental crown, or full mouth denture.
